The Spiral Staircase (1946) [Blanche]: Strangled by George Brent in the wine cellar; the murder occurs in the shadows, so all we see is her hands clutching at the wall. Her body is shown afterwards when Dorothy McGuire discovers her. (See also Gayle Hunnicutt's death in the 1975 remake.)

Serpent of the Nile (1953) [Cleopatra]: Presumably commits suicide by allowing an asp to bite her on the chest. (I haven't seen this movie, so I don't know whether it actually depicts Cleopatra's death or whether it ends before she dies.)
